To worship a meaningful pendant made from the forces of fire and ore and water, stronger than anything it could ever stand for, is like worshiping the flesh, and could neversanctify thy soul.

Unheard plea
Tail spin, tail spin, talisman.
What save ye inside of me,
which has begun to bend?
Tempered steel, the fire doth congeal,
beyond your symbol's pride,
you can not the spiral stop,
the tail spin out of site.
And if I find a truth divine,
would it be as the talisman of my dreams?
Could it change or rearrange,
my cloak's sanities weakening seams?
Say me to thee; "pity not," 
as down you look the frown you see.
'tis just a fool in live's tail spin,
to the talisman I cry,
an unheard plea.

I was really moved by this poem!
Reviewed by Diana Legun (Reader) 4/7/2012
In the introduction, I'm thinking the opposite: that what the pendant stands for would be stronger than any metalurgic element it contains. But perhaps the message is worship not item but essence, either way. I see in 'Unheard plea' a tearing between token and truth. There is a magnetic pull to these lines that is tangible, like dualing energy. The lines "Could it change or rearrange/my cloak's sanities weakening seams?" and the next stanza, "Say me to thee;..." contain a riddle-like quality. This one affects me in wanting there to be more of its music. ~~ Diana
